About Don Schnake

I'm retired, living in Rancho Mirage near Palm Springs. When I joined the Crystal Cathedral over 30 years ago I told the people interviewing me that my primary interest in the church was the Hazel Wright organ. I spend the summers in Long Beach so I am able to attend Shepherd's Grove every Sunday. In the winter (October thru May) I come in from the Palm Springs area about once a month to attend Shepherd's Grove and usher at Segerstrom Center for the Arts Concert Hall that has a fine pipe organ.
